Feeling a wee bit over extended after the excesses of the hols? Us too. A good juice feels great right about this time of year.
ELXR Juice Lab
If you’re too busy to get to the juice place, the juice can come to you. ELXR delivers, just the juices, waters, and seed mylks you choose, or they can come up with a cleanse for you. All the juices are cold-pressed, and they also make seed mylks and waters – the After Party (alkaline water, lemon, maple syrup and activated charcoal) probably would be useful right about now. You can also buy them at a few gyms in the city.

Greenhouse boasts a big list of cold-pressed, all-organic juices, nut milks, and ‘hydrators’. The range of nut milks are interesting – there’s brazil nut, cashew, almond, and coconut. The Piloto sounds amazing – half brazil nut milk and half cold-brew Pilot coffee. You can add shots of aloe water, turmeric, ginseng, and a collection of potent combinations thereof to any of their juices. Greenhouse also delivers, and provides cleanse packages.
